Latin American Film Series

Columbus State's Spanish program is co-hosting a Latin American Film Series in October and November, focusing on the films of Walter Salles.

The series is sponsored by the Spanish Program in our Department of Modern Languages, along with Ohio State University's Center for Latin American Studies. All movies are free and subtitled in English. And Columbus State students are invited when Salles himself visits Ohio State on Nov. 16.

Brazilian filmmaker Salles (Central do Brasil, The Motorcycle Diaries) is the most recognizable figure of contemporary Brazilian cinema globally, and his films have consistently won nominations and prizes at top-tier film festivals.

"This is a unique opportunity to enjoy high-quality cinematographic products from all around Latin America, which get very poor commercial circulation, even though they are well-received and widely awarded in the international festivals," says Dr. G. Raquel Pina, a Columbus State Spanish instructor and co-organizer.
